From #1 New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels--one of the most beloved authors of our time--comes a gripping new novel filled with heart and hope, as a young woman wrongly found guilty of murder receives the gift of a second chance. . .

On the eve of her retirement, Georgia attorney Mikala Aulani is as vivacious and vibrant as ever, eagerly anticipating a happy future with her partner, Ben. But if Kala has learned anything in thirty-five years of practicing law, it's that the truth can always surprise you. And when Adam Star turns up at her office, confessing to the long-ago murder of his wife, Kala must return to a notorious case that has never stopped haunting her.

Ten years have passed since young nurse Sophie Lee was accused of murdering her wealthy patient, Audrey Star. Kala defended Sophie and had no doubt of her innocence--or of Adam Star's guilt--but the prosecution convinced a jury otherwise. Sophie was convicted on a Tuesday--the day on which every significant event in her life, good or bad, seems to happen. Now, on the verge of his death, Adam exonerates Sophie and also leaves her a huge fortune in atonement.

Released from prison, Sophie retreats to Kala's house and tries to evade the media frenzy that surrounds her. Kala is determined to help her client make her way back into the world and adjust to her new wealth and freedom. Yet for both, there are still revelations in store--about the nature of redemption, the strange workings of fate, and the power of forgiveness. And most of all, about the secrets that hide in every heart--even those we think we know best.

Hooked from page 1. Really enjoyed it.Not an action movie but it seemed fast paced. There is enough of a mystery to keep you reading.

While the storyline was somewhat interesting, the writing was really choppy. Also, as someone else has mentioned, a couple of the characters turned into totally different people, seemingly overnight, in a way that wasn't authentic or believable. Nope, didn't like this one at all.

A quick read, sure. But it seems that it wasn't very well thought out. The difference between Sophie in Hawaii and Sophie back in Atlanta is immense! It's as if she was transformed into a different person during the flight. It seems that the author suddenly stopped liking her heroine.

Ms. Fern seems to have recovered from her writer's block but this novel is a tad too overblown. She seriously needs to take a break from writing.

Great Read. Love the ending. Not at all what I thought it would be. One of her better books.

I agree, this was one of the best Fern Michaels books. Much better than the "Godmother" series! I really loved this book and it was truly a page turner. Highly recommended.
